Lord knows how you come to the conclusion that the Spurs squad is better than the #$%$' Sfer.
From what I see Spurs have 1 outstanding player, and possibly 4 good players, with the French keeper being the best of that bunch. The rest are average.
Arsenal, on the other hand, are full to the brim with international stars, though granted, no player as outstanding as Bale has been this season. The squad is far better in depth IMO.
On their day, both teams can beat each other. But at their peak and on form, I sincerely think Arsenal have the upper hand still. This Arsenal squad has only just begun really understanding each other IMO.
I will be gutted if Arsenal miss out on the CL.
If Arsenal do manage to qualify, then i'll be gutted that I cannot recall precisely what it was Arry had to say about the Arsenal squad, earlier in the season, on MOTD. Something along the lines of 'they are so poor, i'll eat my hat if Wenger manages to qualify for the CL this year!'.
He seemed to say it with real vitriol too.
As far as I can see Fab, there are as many "Internationals" in the Spurs squad as Ar$e. It is of course just a matter of opinion which squad you see as stronger but there are only one or two in the Ar$e squad that I think are anything above average. How many are being tapped up by one of the other World's great teams? Oh, that would be none. You gave away your two "World Class" players and didn't replace them. Giroud, Podolski, Gervinho have all flopped so far. Walcott, well we all know about him and his ability to run very fast - either straight off the pitch or forgetting the ball. You back four are a recognised failure as is your Keeper. You have a couple of OK midfielders but EVERYBODY knows this Ar$e squad is a shadow of previous squads.
What does Arry know!!

Sfer, with all due respect, if Arsenals back four are such a 'failure'(best away record in the Prem I believe!), and if Arsenals frontline is such a 'failure' (scored more goals than City and only two behind Chelsea, and please, feel free to take into account the money these guys spent!), and, because of this,the squad of Arsenal is of a lesser quality than your beloved Spurs, then how come......Arsenals goal difference is so much better than that of Spurs?
Arsenals being level with that of second in the table, and former champions, City, and only three off of that of Chelsea BTW.
Bare in mind, due to long term injuries sustained to key players, Wilshere and Rosicky, these guys had not the benefit of playing alongside the new faces brought in the season before last, Arteta, Gervinho, Chamberlin and Obviously, also bare in mind the players brought in this season, Podolski, Giroud, Cazorla, Monreal.
As I stated in my previous post, I reckon this Arsenal squad is only just beginning to find its feet.
Spurs are much improved. But IMO, are not up there with Arsenal yet, even IF they manage to finish a place or so above us in the league this season, I believe Arsenal are well set for next.
